Tina, a troubled teenage girl, is attracted to Dana, an Afghani girl, whom Tina tells us is oppressively victimised by her controlling substance abusing father, Karim. Initially, we trust Tina and admire her protectiveness of Dana from the other kids at school and on the violent estate, but as we watch their friendship blossom we come to suspect that something is off.
